So, my readers, I’m sure at least some of you are wondering about the name Highlands of Halaran. Here’s the story….
pronunciation: Let’s start here. Halaran is pronounced HAL-a-rahn — not ha-LARE-un. 🙂 Anyways.
origin: Once upon a time, my sisters and I decided to create imaginary lands for us to be princesses of. (; Halaran was what I came up with.
history: My last name is Kimzey, and my family ancestry on my father’s side is Scottish — likely descendants of the McKenzie clan. This is the signifigance of the Highlands of Halaran.
more history: Also, the castle you see for the header is Eilean Donan castle, a castle off the Western coast of Scotland. Eilean Donan belonged to the McKenzie clan for a time until the MacDonalds took it. This
revenge is the tale behind my bonny highland castle.
